THE OTHERKIN TAROT REVIEW
The creator of the Linestrider Tarot , comes a world that’s both familiar and strange–both for other people and their kin. This deck contains a unique card that features a creature who lives in the liminal space between myth, fact, animal and human. The Emperor’s throne is occupied by a lion with the body and appearance of a man. A wise owl serves as Hierophant while frogs, foxes, and frogs assume human clothing.
These fanciful illustrations bring out the deep symbolism of Tarot with their imaginative illustrations. They are created using hand-ground natural colors on unbleached, handmade papers. Otherkin Tarot, based on Rider-Waite Smith system, is appropriate for both novice and advanced readers. This deck is all about travel and being left out in the moonlight. It’s a deck that can be improved with each use.
THE OTHERKIN TAROT CARD DETAILS
Flipping through the Otherkin Tarot is like taking a trip through the looking glass. Every familiar element is countered by something completely unexpected. A wolf wields a hammer, a miniature knight rides a turtle, an octopus cuddles a snake. Welcome to the world of the Otherkin, where Tarot is still Tarot but everything else is just a little…different.It’s a distinctive and appealing art style. The palette is akin to Paulina Cassidy’s, but the lines are cleaner. These are some of the most beautiful decks on the market, hand-drawn gems in a field crowded by mediocre digital renderings. Thompson’s drawings are both contemporary and full of bygone storybook whimsy, the visual heir of Aubrey Beardsley and Beatrix Potter.
